13 redevelopers vie for right to turn Sydney power station into knowledge hub

UrbanGrowth NSW (New South Wales, Australia) says it has received significant interest from Australian and international groups wanting to lead redevelopment of the White Bay Power Station, a priority destination for Sydney’s Bays Precinct Urban Transformation Program.

A total of 13 proposals were received during UrbanGrowth’s request for proposals process, which closed February 25, 2016.

“The proposals will now go through the process of evaluation and recommendations will be made to government in June 2016,” UrbanGrowth’s chief executive David Pitchford said.

He explained that submissions would be judged against criteria including strategic objectives, development outcomes and economic value.

Sydney has an exciting future as the home of a diversified and internationally competitive knowledge sector and the White Bay Power Station has the potential to be its hub,” Pitchford continued.
